Alex is a top online marketer who has earned over a million dollars in the network marketing / affiliate sales industry.
Alex, what’s an interestingly weird fact about yourself?
I came to the U.S. with $10 to my pocket at age 16.
How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
We didn’t have any money, and was living in a tiny room that could fit a mattress.
My first job was servicing fire extinguishers.
I got my first computer when I was 16 in the Ukraine.
I was a system administrator for a publishing company in New York City working for Time Magazine.
Got stuck in a rut working 10-8, got sick and tired of it and felt like I was wasting my life.
Got started with Monavie and this was my first opportunity that got me in this industry.
I went through a lot of struggles but learned through the journey.
Recruited 10-12 people my first month (all my wife Anna’s relatives).
I soon realized most people just are not as committed as I was.
I also realized I needed to do something different and change my course of direction so I jumped on Google and searched for “How to generate leads online” and came across this guy Mike Dillard and was sucked in.
Bought his book Magnetic Sponsoring and all his products that night.
Read that book from cover to cover in 1 sitting.
That’s when I started online in 2009-2010.
My first month I spent $5-10k in Google ads promoting the company replicated site direct.
Alex, what’s your Big Reason Why?
People always gravitate from pain to pleasure so I thought about, “Do I really want to be in that cubicle for the rest of my life?”
My dream was to live on my terms because I hate comuting, being stuck and just wanted to work from home and have freedom.
What’s your top 3 advertising tips for generating traffic and converting sales?
#1 – Always know your marketing budget and do not go above it.
Know your conversion numbers and risk factor.
#2 – Be completely emotionally detached from any outcome.
#3 – Modeling is key, go to live events.
My success started when I went to my first live event.
If you only had $1,000 to your name and a laptop computer, walk us through step by step exactly what you would do to jump-start your business?
Find out from other people promoting what’s the best funnel/landing pages, etc. and take $600 and buy traffic from 3 different places and just track my results.
Alex, what’s your best Entrepreneur Advice?
Go after your dreams, cause anyone can go form zero to hero in this industry.
Favorite Success Quote:
“Just Do it, don’t make any excuses.”
Be willing to do more for others than for yourself.
Working harder on yourself than you do for your business.
What you give away you get to keep.
